What a transformation. Totally rubbish a few years ago but holiday inns has taken over and transformed it into a hotel you would want to stay at. Food excellent and good bar service. Wrinklies party on at night so we were given a superbly quiet room. A great stay. Super well trained and motivated staff.

Rooms were lovely very well looked after with very comfortable bed and all mod cons. Breakfast was all you can eat with bacon and eggs etc but also continental mixed in. Two girls on reception very friendly when we checked out but I have marked the hotel down due to the women who checked us in at 5pm last night... More

I like Holiday Inn. They really try. I used to pass this hotel when traversing the A66 and never thought it too look very welcoming. I'll be stopping when I get the chance again. Great welcome. Very tastefully decorated albeit simple room. I booked dinner in the restaurant the menu was great and complementary olive bread with oil made me... More

Great staff and service, I stay in many IHG hotels in the UK, and this is one of the best for service and a very nice welcome. In addition a very modern bar area, with the adjoining restaurant area. Would highly recommend just off the main A road, very easy access

We were staying for a friend's wedding locally at new year . We were pleasantly surprised by the inside of the hotel, for a fairly bleak looking Holiday Inn outside, inside the reception and hallways were lovely and modern, spacious and clean. The room was fine (an executive king) although the bathroom suffered from very poor lighting which was annoying... More

We stayed for one night en route to Alnwick. We were very pleasantly surprised as the hotel is now very smart, warm and comfortable. Our room wasn't huge but it had all we needed and was immaculately clean. Well, all except electricity - this was in the recent gales and we had a power cut shortly after booking in. Not... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us at the hotel. First off, please let me apologise for the inconvenience the power outage caused you on this occasion.

As you would expect from a holiday inn the rooms were large, clean and well decorated. Breakfast was buffet style with a good selection. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We have stayed in quite a few hotels around Richmond and although this is further out the price reflects that (when we've booked its been much cheaper than most reasonable... More

The hotel in general was lovely and really quite elegant for a Holiday Inn but a few things let it down. The bedroom was very small and claustrophobic but the main problem here was the size and warmth of the duvet. On arrival the room was very cold and took a long time to warm up (and even then wasn't... More
